The Football Academy at St Peter’s, Cambridge is one of our four Junior Sports Academies. It caters for Years 7–10 students and operates as part of their Physical Education programme.

Directed by former All Whites Coach Ricki Herbert, our Football Academy provides a high-quality, holistic programme designed to progressively develop our players’ technical and tactical abilities. Our experienced coaches use skills-based training methods and work with players on fundamental movement skills. They also provide expertise on strength and conditioning, nutrition, sport psychology, goal-setting, time management, and leadership.

Our Football Academy provides clear pathways for students to progress towards regional representative teams and New Zealand international teams.

Football players in Years 7–10 are invited to apply for places in the Football Academy. Please contact us for more information.
